U. Joseph Schoepf, M.D.

The present study aimed to determine the feasibility of a novel fractional flow reserve (FFR) algorithm based on coronary CT angiography that permits point-of-care assessment, without data transfer to core laboratories, for the evaluation of potentially ischemia-causing stenoses. Read more

Balazs Ruzsics, M.D., PhD

The following question has been sent by Dr. Shrinivas Desai: DSCT Myocardial perfusion versus SPECT CT myocardial perfusion: Jaslok Hospital in mumbai, India is buying Siemens DSCT (Flash Definition Dual source Dual energy). We already have a SPECT on which thallium myocardial perfusion is done. The nuclear medicine department is considering acquiring … Read more

Dual-energy CT of the heart for diagnosing coronary artery stenosis and myocardial ischemia-initial experience

posted by U. Joseph Schoepf, M.D. | Jul 22, 2008
U. Joseph Schoepf, M.D.

Abstract We aimed to evaluate the feasibility of diagnosing coronary stenosis and myocardial ischemia with a single dual-energy CT (DECT) acquisition. Thirty-five patients underwent contrast-enhanced, ECG-gated DECT of the heart while independently operating the two tubes of a dual-source CT system at high and low-energy X-ray spectra. From the same … Read more
